>Hardware by definition is propriatory, there is no way around it.
This is my point: if you don't like the definition, and find it insurmountable, *then change it*.
While I wouldn't contend that it's likely that the F/OSS community can beat nVidia or ATI head-on in a graphics shoot-out, hopefully the Open-Graphics effort will culminate in something that runs 2d graphics at reasonable resolution.
I realize that some people are deeply into games, and there will always be an nVidia to push them 31337 hardware.
Others, however, see the compiler as the ultimate game...
